COLOR BEFORE WATER 7/10
pretty much the exact same as the 70 verte, very light green.
it is like white wine with a slight hint of green.

LOUCHE ACTION 10/10
I can't really picture a louche I would enjoy watching anymore than this

Green trails with blue tinted edges swirl up from the bottom of the glass slowly becoming thick clouds of milky jade

COLOR AFTER WATER 6/10
diluted milky jade.

AROMA 21/30
Neat: it smells mostly of Wormwood very perfumy and nice like the brut but with more anise and less alcohol kick.
After water: it becomes very rounded and soft.

MOUTH-FEEL 8/10
Nice and silky and not overly oily.

TASTE 17/20
it's kind of plain but not bad in any way. I would call it standard.
wormwood, anise and maybe a small amount of fennel in the end.

OVERALL IMPRESSION 7/10
I am left with the feeling of "standard" not above, not below. very middle of the road.

I like this absinthe but it's just not complex or interesting. I would drink this over many things but not any of the other IKEs I have tried.
